We Will Remember Them
Good Sunday Morning Lovely craft friends,
I had an amazing time at the Stampin'Up! Onstage Convention, it was fun, very inspiring and I must have come away with about £120-£130 worth of stamps, two bags, 1 canvas, 1 shopping bag that zips into a pouch an a lovely tool wallet too, all with the lovely SU logo, Danielle also gave a lovely SU shopping bag which is so pretty too.
We don't have to keep all of the new products a secret anymore, we can share everything we received, so of course I will be sharing them with all of you.
Right lets get on with the show.....
Brenda went for a clean and simple card that would work for both men and ladies alike. Cream, Navy and Gold is such a lovely combination Brenda, thank you so much for sharing your lovely card with us,

Karen has made a beautiful Stained Glass Christmas card, I love that Blue background too,
"Here’s my cc I’ve gone for White/ red and green/ colour with markersIt’s SW stained glass window die stuck onto a piece of vellum and coloured from behind - so easy It doesn’t matter if you go over the lines slightly I then backed it onto pale blue card which really makes it pop"
I really do like that die Karen, the outer frame is super pretty too, thank you for inspiring us all to have a go at different techniques.
Lynda has gone all 'ooh la la' with this card, those bright red die intricate die set to embellish her pretty green floral background paper. Those Poinsettia's are gorgeous too Lynda, thank you so much for another gorgeous card.
Oh Lilian I do love this lovely Winter scene that you have created, using torn paper edged with glitter to look like snow covered hills, those darling little houses in the foreground are paper pieced beautifully Lilian, I also love you snowy trees sat in what looks like real snow!
The Categories I see are: Blue/ Decorative Papers/snow
Thank you so much Lilian for another amazing Masterpiece.
Margaret has gone for a Christmas card for this week's challenge using lovely 'traditional' Festive colours. Margaret has used Stampin Up! Dashing Along Designer series paper for this particular card, matting and layering with other papers from the set, the centre of the card has a stamped sentiment that is set upon a pretty ribbon border.
I love these colours Margaret, thank you so much for inspiring us all.
Maria has created two absolutely stunning Christmas cards for this weeks challenge, just look at the amount of detail in that first card. That little wreath is so cute and I absolutely love what you have done with the bottom of the card, adding Iced Snow to all of that foliage was an amazing idea as it really brings it all to life.
The first card uses Categories: Red/Green/ Snow/ Pretty decorative paper
Maria's second card uses the same 'Merry Christmas' die that Brenda used on her card this week, Maria has die cut the elements for this card out of a very pretty Blue Glitter paper, it is so beautiful.
This card used categories: Ribbon White/Dry Emboss
Thank you so much Maria for taking part in this challenge,
How pretty is this Christmas card that Michele has made, using a pretty polka dot paper in the background and Sue's 'Eternal Rings ' Striplet die. Michele has embellished her card with a really blue snowflake ribbon and a glitter covered snowflake to finish her card.
Michele's card uses categories: Snow/White/Ribbon
Thanks Michele for another lovely Challenge card.
Phew ladies, I didn't think I was to make it through all of your cards typing a brief description as I kept nodding off, I kept waking up and looking down to at what I had written to see a complete row or t's or m's, as my finger would sit on those keys as I nodded off.
In my defence we were up and awake at before 5am to get up and ready to leave for Onstage as registration started for wheelchair users at 7.45am, we finally got home after the event at about 8.30pm. I will be having a very relaxed day today and probably tomorrow too.
Thank you to all of you that took part in todays blog post, I am so very grateful to all of you.
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
